The Korowai tribes in West Papua live in the least explored jungles of the world in very isolated territory. In 1978 the first contact was established by pastor Johannes Veldhuizen. Today the Korowai tribe count around 3000 people and many of them still choose to live in their villages in the forest rather than in government built towns. The Korowai remain dependent on the forest and are hunters - gatherers with excellent fishing skills, living in small family groups. Most of the Korowai still live in wooden houses of approximately 8 meters from the ground, but there are also houses on ground level. During this tour to Korowai we will travel deep into the southern lowland forests of Indonesian New Guinea.
We are the only tour operator that start this trip from Merauke towards Kepi because of the beautiful sceneries and adventurous character. You need to be prepared to go back to basic and surrender yourself to the magnificent nature surrounding you. Expect no facilities or modernity during this trip. You will sleep in one of the local houses and/or huts.
